Singer, songwriter Thomas Headon releases his brand new amazing EP ‘Victoria’ alongside a new official video for the lead single
The video depicts the nostalgia for how Thomas and his first love created their own little world within the four walls of Thomas’ first ever car, from the innocence and the secrecy to the arguments and the euphoric highs.
Thomas says: “I’ve written the ‘Victoria’ EP over the course of 6 months in a bunch of different places. Musically it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to be and I’m really glad that I’ve done it with this record. It’s basically a look into my diary over the past half-year. It’s been quite a big step for me, putting out songs that are super honest and mean so much to me, but it feels great and I hope there’s a teenager somewhere experiencing what I did making this EP and relates to it in the same way.”
Radio 1-playlisted “Strawberry Kisses” documents the euphoria of spending the night with someone you think is out of your league, while “Nobody Has To Know” explores a secret teen-fling, “How Do I Know?” navigates the confusing feelings of young love and “The Most Beautiful Thing” was written in 10 minutes of admiration for the girl he just spent the whole night with. Title track “Victoria” is about Thomas’ first ever love.
Thomas also adds: “The ‘Victoria’ music video is my favorite one from my Victoria EP. It feels honest and pays homageto what the song is about really nicely, and because of that is a push in quite an emotional direction that I haven’t been in before. Compared to the other songs on this EP, this is quite a dark story so the director Jordan Curtis-Hughes and myself felt we had to make something that is true to the lyrics, yet relatable to so many people my age who’ll be able to watch it and instantly think of someone they have a similar relationship with.”
Later this month, Thomas will head out on his first-ever North American headline tour, which kicks off March 24th at New York City’s Mercury Lounge and wraps up April 6th at Echo in Los Angeles, CA.
Born in London and raised in Melbourne, Thomas Headon dreamed of moving back to the city to pursue music and was told by his mom that he had a year to get a “proper job,” otherwise he would have to return home. Arriving in London just before the pandemic hit, Thomas started to build a community online – blowing up on TikTok with 16M likes and nearly 450K followers to date – with his off-kilter live sessions, tongue-in-cheek charm, and remarkable songwriting ability. Learning to write and produce on his own in his late teens, Thomas has already released a self-written and self-produced debut EP, The Greatest Hits,and dropped The Goodbye EP last year, amassing 55 million streams worldwide, all before his 21st birthday.
Thomas performed a charmingly energetic live session on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show, which followed his “Living Room Shows” tour, where he played an intimate acoustic series to thousands of fans across the UK.
